Based on the blog yesterday, I want to continue pointing to the fullness of this marvelous gift – the Holy Spirit. Some today doubt what God can do, saying that no one can be filled with the Spirit in our day. This gift was given to certain individuals before Christ ascended to heaven. The angel told Zechariah that his son John (the Baptist) would be filled with the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:12-15). When Elizabeth met Mary, she was filled with the Holy Spirit and uttered a blessing on Mary because she was pregnant with Jesus by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:41-42). Zechariah was filled with the Spirit after their son (John) was brought the eighth day to be circumcised (Luke 1:67).
Tomorrow we will look at Pentecost and what happened after the Holy Spirit came. Let me leave with a question: why did Jesus breathe on His disciples and say, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22)?
